Thread: Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction

  1. #1

    Default Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction

    Hi, I have burnt all 3 of my diablo 2 cd's and burnt the Expansion cd.

    I have burnt all 4 cd's on alcohol 120% with DPM 1x.

    Now I load Diablo 2 and install that fine. But after that is installed I go to install Lord of destruction and for some reason it will not accept the play disk image. Nothing seems to work, even if I place the original cd in the drive it still doesn't work. Anyone know how to fix this?

    D2 & LoD donґt need DPM, just sub-channel data, so use SecuROM new profile in Alcohol, not SecuROM new 4.x profile!

    You think that will work? It's really in the installation stage of LOD that it stops working. As in, refuses to accept an iso or even the original cd itself as the 'playdisc'. Am I doing this right? Or should I burn the LOD image?

    No matter what I've done, I constantly get the same result. It sits on the 'Insert 'playdisc' message'.

    There are some things:
    1. To create perfect backup you need hardware able to read and write subchannel data,
    2. if you play from writer, you´ve to enable a hide-ATIP-function (e.g. Daemon Tools SecuROM emluation hides ATIP);


    3. if you start the game via the normal icon (d2.exe) it´ll play from lowest drive letter only, try starting the game via game.exe,
    4. iso won´t work, ´cause it lacks important copy protection data, i.e. subchannel data.

    If you have images of all 4 CD then i don't understand the problem. In fact for installation even subchannel information does not matter - only to play. As far as i rememeber when you install LOD then original Diablo2 play CD is not needed anymore - if it asks Playdisc then you need to insert LOD disc, not original Diablo2 play disc! You can safely remove your original 3 CDs for a long time - you won't need them anymore at all.
    Of course make sure you made FULL install of original Diablo2 before installing LOD.

    I discovered the problem.

    Problem was:

    There were problems with the image, which I traced back to a problem on the actual original cd. Which refused to allow the installation to copy a file when using daemon tools. After I burnt the image it was fine. Although there is corruption in one of the files. I'm yet to encounter any problems with the game so far.

    Backup whilst not a complete success, silly me should be more careful not to damage the original.

    Which program did you use to create the image. Get the latest version of Alcohol 120% and try it again, use the Securom *NEW profile (don't use the Securom *NEW 4.x/5.x): www.alcohol-software.com

    - If Alcohol doesn't help (try 1x), try Blindwrite 5 with 1x or maybe CloneCD (don't know exactly if CCD can copy SecuROM 5)
